How to Really Live In the Moment and Appreciate Life Is What Momina Mustehsan's 'Jee Liya' Is All About
The song serves as a reminder about how life is short and one should never stop living or enjoying life to the fullest despite the odds and obstacles that one has to face; in other words, carpe-diem. The lyrics reflect inspirational stories of survival. As Momina explains,
Jee Liya is a song inspired from our stories of survival. I always aim to use my music as a medium to inspire people, to keep themselves going, strong and brave even in the light of negativity around them. If you have ever fallen down, lost hope, gathered yourself up and bravely moved on, JeeLiya is a song that will hopefully connect with you.’
The music video depicts Momina having fun surrounded by her friends. The theme of the song is pure happiness- to find the good in all that life throws at you and to look at the bright side and enjoy the little things in life for one day you will look back and realise they were the big things. The song inspires us to let go, enjoy life for what it is, make the most of every moment and handle the bad with grace.
The singer writes an emotional letter with the release of the track to highlight her struggles.
“Just like everyone, I have had my fair share of struggles. At a point when I seemed to be at the highest high publicly, I was battling the lowest low internally. I fought past it. I had to struggle to write my own narrative, find my own identity, and continue to fight with myself to keep at it. Life is not a bed of roses, and that’s the beauty of it! It takes you up and brings you down – and then takes you back up! It’s just like a thrilling ride at an amusement park. The best we can do is to live every single moment!,” she wrote in the letter.
